By 2050, the world population is expected to grow from 7 billion to nearly 10 billion people. In order to feed the world and meet this demand, global food production must grow by 70%. This is no easy task.
To solve global food security, we need people from all different walks of life. Regardless of your college, major, or career experience, if you’re a sophomore, now’s your chance to make a difference.
Meet with Emerging Leaders about their local, national, and international experience with the Land O’Lakes, Inc. Global Food Challenge.
When: Wednesday, October 12, 2016, 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.
Where: Room 1211 Biochemical Sciences Building, 440 Henry Mall, Madison, WI 53706
